About Tranzyme Pharma

Tranzyme Pharma is a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on discovering, developing and commercializing novel, mechanism-based therapeutics for the treatment of upper gastrointestinal (GI) motility disorders. While approximately 40 percent of people in the U.S. are affected by these persistent and recurring conditions which disrupt the normal movement of food throughout the GI tract, there are a limited number of safe and effective treatment options. Tranzyme is developing TZP-102, an oral ghrelin agonist for treating the symptoms associated with chronic upper GI motility disorders. Enrollment is complete in a multinational Phase 2b trial evaluating TZP-102 given once daily in diabetic patients with gastroparesis; top-line data are expected by year-end 2012. Tranzyme has initiated a second Phase 2b trial (DIGEST) evaluating TZP-102 given prior to meals in diabetic patients with gastroparesis; top-line data are expected in the first half of 2013. By leveraging its proprietary drug discovery technology, MATCH™, Tranzyme is committed to pursuing first-in-class medicines to address areas of significant unmet medical needs.
